If you want to check out a Damien Hirst while you eat and you want something a little quicker and easier than The Tramshed, head over to the Burger King on Leicester Square, London, because the British artist has just donated an original spin painting to them.
The 2-meter wide painting is appropriately named "Beautiful Psychedelic Gherkin Exploding Tomato Sauce All Over Your Face, Flame Grilled Painting 2003" and has been put behind reinforced glass to stop people getting food on it. Speaking about the donation, Jo Blundell, Burger King UK Ltd Marketing Director for the UK and Ireland, said: "All of our new look restaurants will provide a more modern experience… In the case of Leicester Square, we've given Londoners and guests to the capital a little something extra to enjoy!"
